Orange Digital Ventures announces its latest investment with Raisin, an innovative Berlin-based fintech making strides in the European savings marketplace.
Orange has joined the €100m Series D fundraising round of Raisin alongside existing investors Index Ventures, PayPal, Ribbit Capital and Thrive Capital. The new round allows Raisin, one of the fastest growing European start-ups, to expand its core service in at least two additional European markets this year and extend its line of investment products.
Through its partnerships with over 75 banks from 24 countries, and with over 175,000 users in 31 countries and €12 billion brokered deposits, Raisin has created the leading pan-European marketplace in retail banking, removing barriers to profitable and easy savings for consumers as well as creating simple and fast access to liquidity for banks.
Raisin offers a ‘deposit-as-a-service’ platform to its partner banks, providing them with access to markets and to liquidity across Europe, and competitive savings and investment opportunities to its customers, who can select from Raisin’s 250 plus savings products.
Raisin’s solution aligns with Orange’s strategic objectives, particularly in mobile financial services, where the group has two key strong initiatives with Orange Bank in Europe and Orange Money in Africa.
